Speakers and organizers are available for interviews in advance.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A woman who walked away from her job as a clinic director at Planned Parenthood clinic and a UCLA student who leads a group intent on exposing abuses in the abortion industry will speak at the 6th Annual Walk for Life West Coast Saturday, January 23rd in San Francisco.

More than 35,000 people from colleges, high schools and churches from as far away as Denver and Texas will rally at 11 AM, Saturday, January 23rd, and walk 2 miles across San Francisco, through Fisherman's Wharf ending at Marina Green in sight of the Golden Gate Bridge. Hundreds of buses are registered to bring peaceful pro-life walkers particularly from throughout California and Oregon. Also, San Francisco and Paris have become pro-life "sister cities!" Paul Ginoux-Defermont, from the Marche Pour Le Respect de la Vie will attend.

The Walk for Life West Coast's motto is "Abortion Hurts Women." Several of this year's speakers will draw on personal experience to focus on the exploitation of women driven by the abortion industry's profiteering.

Speakers include: Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director who walked away; Lila Rose, president of Live Action, an activist group devoted to exposing abuses by abortion providers; Irene Beltran with Georgette Forney of Silent No More, a group of those who regret their abortions; Rev. Jim Garlow, pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego; Rev. Clenard Childress Jr., founder Frank Lee, coordinator of Asian Americans Pro-Life will give the invocation and David Bereit, national campaign director for 40 Days for Life will receive the Walk's St. Gianna Molla Award.

The Walk for Life West Coast was started by San Franciscans in 2005 to affirm the right to life from conception to natural death and particularly to change hearts hurt by the violence of abortion. While most of the organizers and a large proportion of the participants are people of faith, the Walk is a non-sectarian and non-denominational event that openly expresses belief in God but welcomes all who share a respect for life. It is held on the Saturday closest to the January 22nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling.
